    Please help, my guinea pig isn’t eating her hay!

    My 4 year old guinea pig is not eating her hay. I got afraid she wasn’t eating anything and then I gave her some grass as a test and she ate it. She is also still eating her veggies. So she is still eating, but I don’t want her to get used to grass or veggies since hay is better for them and...

    Is this grass? Is it safe?

    We have a lot of this random grass looking stuff in our garden. I *think* it is just another type of grass but wanted to get opinions from others just to see if I am just being overly paranoid. It is difficult to capture it in photos but I did try.. see what you think. Thanks.
